Luxury African Safari
They have an amazing grand prize: a luxury African safari for two in Botswana courtesy of Natural Selection and Dusty Boots Travel. Full details will be revealed shortly.

Panasonic G9 and 50-200mm f2.8-4.0 lens
This year’s overall contest series winner will receive a Panasonic Lumix G9 camera and a Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 50-200mm f/2.8-4.0 ASPH lens!

The G9 sits at the top of Panasonic’s range of cameras and has an incredible set of features which make it perfect for nature photographers. The camera’s ability to capture up to 50 images per second gives you a better chance of capturing the perfect shot in an action sequence, and a “high-resolution” mode allows you to take stunning 80 megapixel still images, ideal for landscapes. The G9 also boasts 4K video resolution at 60 frames per second!

Taking into account the crop factor of the G9’s Micro Four Thirds sensor, the Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 50-200mm f/2.8-4.0 gives the equivalent of a 100mm-400mm focal length – a perfect range for wildlife photography. Furthermore, the fast f/2.8-4.0 aperture enables higher shutter speeds to freeze the motion of fast-moving subjects. Panasonic has used a nano surface coating to eliminate flare and ghosting and the lens has been designed to be dust, moisture and freeze-proof!
